Okay, I know this is a very long shot, but a couple of years ago I talked to a woman at a small ceremony at the Wink the Penguin statue. She had the best glasses! I complimented her on them and she let me take a picture of them. I've tried to find those same frames with no luck. Now that two years have passed, I'm thinking, well, just maybe she's tired of them and is ready for a change! Like I said, I realize this is not likely, but just in case, if you see this, Monarch-Wearing Woman, please let me know if you're looking for a good home for those lovely frames!  :)

Thanks, Lilybell. That's the right style but not the right color. I've been watching eBay, but the turquoise version this woman was wearing hasn't appeared on there since I started looking. :(

I'm attaching the photo I took. Looks like they are turquoise and brown (not black).

I want to thank Ed (see above) for getting in touch with me. I believe it probably was his wife (now, sadly, departed) who chatted with me and who cheerfully allowed me to take a picture of her frames. He kindly offered her Morgenthal-Frederics glasses to me, and I am so touched by his generosity. I'm glad I took my long-shot chance and posted here!

Yes! It was a pretty incredible thing. And it all was set in motion by my encounter with a Jackson Heights resident at a ceremony to recognize our neighborhood penguin statue and the woman who'd been dressing it! We have a cool neighborhood and a lot of good people here.  :)
